Plane, Train, Energy Gain?

This month's Clear the Air Challenge has got many Utahans thinking about energy efficient transportation. At the USEE office, many of us have been biking or long boarding to work and carpooling to events.

When your destination isn't in biking distance, however, you have to battle with other forms of mass transportation such as buses and planes. Ever wonder how these other forms of transportation measure up? Check out this graphic from GOOD.is.

It compares the efficiency of transportation modes in terms of energy per mile per passenger and fuel consumption.

So how will you be getting to grandma's house??
